Abstract

The managerial accounting skills that students need to be successful in hospitality are often determined based on the common textbooks used in the classroom. This can sometimes be challenging for students to get engaged in without supplementing with industry needs. This case study evaluates the main textbook concepts with property visits and discussions to determine which of these skills are used and which are not. Presented as a “Month in the Life of a Hotel Manager” this case study guides students through the managerial skills necessary to effectively do their job and move up in their career.
